NBA.com's David Aldridge is reporting that David West will re-sign with the Golden State Warriors for one year.
This will be West's final season in the NBA, as he plans to retire following the 2017-18 campaign. West is a strong voice in the Warriors locker room and provided some quality minutes in the postseason, but doesn't have any fantasy value in standard leagues. He averaged just 4.6 points and 3.0 rebounds in 12.6 minutes last season. Jul 1 - 12:35 PM

Damian Jones said David West has helped him the most this season.

It's fair to say nobody was happier than West about winning a title. West said he doesn't know if he is going to retire, but he showed he can still play 10-15 minutes as a four or five man. He won't have fantasy value, of course.

David West said he "doesn't know" if he will contemplate retirement this offseason.

West sacrificed upwards of $10 million dollars over the last two seasons just to have a chance at a title. That bet paid off on Monday night, as West won his first ring. "Taking that money in Indiana wouldn’t feel like this," said West after the Warriors Game 5 victory. "I’m just telling you. It wouldn’t. It’s not even close." When asked if he was contemplating retirement, West responded: "I don’t know. I feel good. That’s why everyone keeps asking me. I don’t know. I just feel great."

David West was terrific during Wednesday's win vs. the Spurs, coming off the bench for 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting, five assists, four rebounds, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

"I don’t like to [rest players] but I’m trying to get us ready for the playoffs, keep our guys fresh," said coach Steve Kerr. "If they need a rest, I’ll do it." West is 36 years old and could be a DNP-CD candidate down the stretch, but it really helps that he's averaged just 12.1 minutes this season. Despite his big game tonight, he's not a trustworthy fantasy asset.
Mar 30 - 1:27 AM

David West finished Wednesday's game scoreless with four rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 12 minutes vs. the visiting Celtics.

West went into the locker room briefly in the first half with an undisclosed ailment. He played his typical stint in the second half, however, and we're leaving him off the injury report unless something surfaces prior to Friday's game in Minnesota.
Mar 9 - 1:47 AM

David West played 16 minutes with two points, five rebounds, five assists and one block against the Bulls on Thursday.

He did see some key minutes late with the Warriors needing some size against the Bulls late. Considering how much power forward Kevin Durant (knee) plays, West should see minutes in the teens instead of his 11.6 minutes per game he was averaging before tonight. Obviously he's still not much of a fantasy add.
Mar 2 - 10:49 PM

David West (thumb) returned to action on Thursday and had four points, four rebounds, four assists, a steal and two blocks in 11 minutes off the bench.

He's been out since Jan. 18 and spent most of his night trying to shield teammate Draymond Green from the opposing team and the officials from the comfort of the Warriors bench. He serves a purpose for the Warriors and played well tonight, but as long as Green is healthy, West is nothing more than a good locker-room guy in Golden State.
Feb 24 - 2:03 AM

David West (thumb) will play against the Clippers on Thursday night.

The 36-year-old forward is back after missing the last month due to his thumb fracture. West's return means fewer minutes for Andre Iguoldala and Kevon Looney. West isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 23 - 8:51 PM

David West (thumb) is likely to play against the Clippers on Thursday.

He has been out since Jan. 11 with his sprained thumb. He was playing around 13 minutes per game, so he may return to that role in the second half. Kevon Looney and Andre Iguodala could take some hits in playing time.
Feb 22 - 3:51 PM

David West (thumb) is out for Wednesday against the Kings.

He is expected to return after the break and return to practice soon. Kevon Looney has filled in along with added minutes going to Andre Iguodala.
Feb 15 - 8:53 PM

David West (thumb) is unlikely to return before the All-Star break.

The Warriors haven't missed him too much with Kevon Looney and James Michael McAdoo giving the Warriors decent minutes. West can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Feb 9 - 2:24 AM

David West (thumb) will not play Wednesday vs. the Bulls.

West was able to practice on Monday, but he's still experiencing pain in his surgically repaired thumb, so the Dubs will continue to take a cautious approach here. After Wednesday, Golden State will have a back-to-back set Friday in Memphis and Saturday in OKC, and for now, we'll be considering West questionable for those games.
Feb 7 - 3:23 PM

David West (thumb) practiced on Monday, but he's doubtful to play Wednesday vs. the Bulls.

West is still experiencing pain in his thumb, and until he's completely pain-free, he won't be returning for any game-time action. West is only averaging 11.5 minutes per game this season, so his absence from the rotation doesn't have any major implications in fantasy hoops.
Feb 6 - 3:52 PM

David West (thumb) will not play against the Kings on Saturday.

He is still expected to ramp up next week, so this is expected. With West out, Kevon Looney and James Michael McAdoo could both be in the rotation, especially with Anderson Varejao being waived today.
Feb 3 - 7:38 PM

David West (thumb) remains out for Thursday against the Clippers.

He is going to ramp up soon, but he's still not available to play. With Draymond Green out, Kevon Looney is likely looking at his biggest opportunity in his NBA career and gets to go up against Blake Griffin. We'll see some James Michael McAdoo and obviously plenty of Kevin Durant at the four. Plus, this also helps JaVale McGee a little.
